The Losers takes no prisoners.
Warner Bros.' adaptation of the graphic novel is a non-stop, bullet-riddled rollercoaster that's just as funny as it is furious. In the film, the eponymous team—Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Chris Evans, Columbus Short, Óscar Jaenada and Idris Elba—is left for dead after a setup in the jungle gone horribly awry. A mysterious femme fatale, Aisha (Zoe Saldana), gives them a glimmer of revenge with quite the plan. What ensues is some pulse-pounding rhythmic and relentless action, loaded with laughs…
Star Idris Elba came up with the perfect musical comparison for The Losers.
"It'd be The Gorillaz! It's quirky and edgy but with a sense of humor," said IDris with a smile during our exclusive interview.
Co-stars Zoe Saldana and Jeffrey Dean unanimously agreed, and there wasn't much more validation needed for the claim than that! Seriously are you going to disagree with one of The Watchmen and the girl who starred in Avatar and Star Trek?
The cast also shared some playlist selections with both Chris Evans and Jeffrey Dean Morgan agreeing that grunge is always the way to go especially Stone Temple Pilots, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden and Nirvana.
ARTISTdirect.com editor and Dolor author Rick Florino sat down with the cast of The Losers for this exclusive video interview about their playlists, why the film rules and so much more…Oh yeah, there's a very good "your momma" joke thrown in for good measure. It's planted like a plastic explosive…
